"In the end... We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make." — Lewis Carroll
This 4th of July weekend was more than fireworks and celebrations for me. I learned to not hold back, take high risks and act without regret. Today, Victoria also reminded me of how fleeting life truly is. No one is guaranteed anything in this life. It is your duty as a human being to live your life to the fullest extent and with zero regrets because tomorrow it could all be gone. When she told me of a tragedy that happened to a co-worker of hers over the holiday weekend it solidified to me how much you need to hold onto and fight for those you love, strive for happiness every single day and to live each day like it could be your last.
Without divulging personal details, I took a big risk this weekend and do not for one second regret it (I know I've shared a lot of personal happenings in my life with ya'll but this is something I'd rather keep to myself). In life, the outcomes that breed the biggest rewards usually come from the biggest risks. Angel reminds me of that every time we speak. Life's greatest achievement usually comes from risks and chances you were scared to make, but then you took a leap and sometimes things don't work out the way you'd hope, but other times everything you want and dream come to fruition.
I'm also reminded of this from one of my favorite quotes. "In the end... We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make." — Lewis Carroll. The things I was said, I was nervous, scared and wished there was an undo button. But right now I'm glad I did. I took a chance and whether or not the outcome I'm hoping for comes to light, I need to be proud of myself. I know very well there's like a 99% chance what I want won't happen, but that 1% is worth fighting for... isn't it? If you had a 1% chance of bliss would you risk 99% chance of let down... food for thought, aye?
All I can do is keep my life moving in this forward, keep a smile on my face, take risks and never regret. My instincts have got me thus far in life, I just have to trust myself that the risks I'm taking will illicit the action they're meant too.
